Power Quote Of The Week


“Nothing but Christianity will give you the victory.
Until a man believes in his heart
that Jesus Christ is his Lord and Master…
his course through life will be neither safe nor pleasant.
My only regret is that I was so long blinded by my pleasures,
my vices and pursuits, and the examples of others
that I was kept from seeing, admiring,
and adoring the marvelous light of the gospel.”

Francis Scott  Key   August 1, 1779  –  January 11, 1843

Francis Scott Key came from an affluent family and was a prominent American lawyer who practiced law for four decades in Georgetown. He is best known for writing our American National Anthem that later became “The Star -Spangled Banner”.  He wrote it during the War of 1812, where he observed the British bombardment of Fort McHenry but at dawn the American flag was still flying signaling America had won the battle. There are other stanzas to the “Star-Spangled Banner,” the last stanza has this portion:

“And this be our motto – “In God is our trust,”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
